Hi Bruno,

By way of background the Apache Geronimo project existed long before  
IBM took an interest in it (about two years I think).  Apache  
Geronimo is a community of a large number of folks (and yes, a good  
number of them work for IBM) which I think can be confusing.   I can  
only speak for me (and I do work for IBM) but I tend to draw a  
distinct line between my IBM job and contributing to Apache  
Geronimo.  I think it would be most excellent when a swelling of  
contributors comes and out numbers the current committer base.  I'm  
excited to see people outside of IBM picking Geronimo up and using it  
for their projects as well as contributing back to the project as Jay  
has been doing.

I was concerned about your comment about "how a bug report was  
handled" comment you mentioned above.  How was it handled that gave  
you a bad feeling?
